Reports show Reid, Angle spent nearly $50 million

Defeated Republican challenger Sharron Angle outraised and outspent Democratic incumbent U.S. Sen. Harry Reid in their record-smashing race, according to campaign reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. Together they spent nearly $50 million and both ended up a bit in debt.

More than half of Angle’s contributions came from small donors, $200 or less. Reid was the clear winner among the political action committee crowd, who accounted for a fifth of his funds.

Here’s the picture painted by election cycle campaign reports through Nov. 22, with a final report due in January as both candidates work to retire debt and pay all their bills:

ANGLE:

■ Net contributions: $26.9 million, including $14.7 million from small donors.

■ Net operating expenditures: $25.3 million.

■ Cash on hand: about $292,000.

■ Debts and obligations owed: about $635,700.

REID:

■ Net contributions: $22.5 million, including $15 million from big money donors and nearly $5.2 million from political action committees.

■ Net operating expenditures: $24.6 million.

■ Cash on hand: about $176,300.

■ Debt and obligations owed: about $419,100.
